Back on the boule lanes!

So - since a couple of weeks I am back on the boule lanes twice a week - and together with Sven once a week - every Monday and Thursday - and I do enjoy it! Throwing away those metal balls on a sandy court under the warming sun of Cyprus is exactly a sport for me - and some relaxation for Sven - leaving the golf course for a morning at the boule lanes! And I do appreciate having found a sport that we are able to do together!

And - as we only have three lanes the maximum of people playing is 18 - and we have been that many during the last weeks! We do  highly enjoy it!

Our 70th birthdays celebrated in Cyprus!

Back in Cyprus we continued to plan our 70th birthdays together with four of our friends who also have turned 70 years old earlier this year. We decided to celebrate our mature ages - in total 420 years - at a wine yard - and of course we did choose the best - Tsangarides  - situated in a small village close to Paphos. The owner Angelos prepared a fantastic barbecue for us and we were served his very tasty wines - white, rosé and red - all through the afternoon with rape grapes hanging over us - ready to be picked. For Sven and me it was a very big difference to the weather Västervik presented to us in July..... Then it was rain, rain and once again rain - and now it was sun, sun and once again sun!

We had a fantastic afternoon and we all injoyed the food, the weather and the wines - and of course the Zorba dancers entertaining us and trying to learn us how to dance - and taking into consideration that Sven and I belong to the youngest we all did very well!

We all say a warm "Thank you" to Tsangarides Winery, the owner Angelos, his father and sister and last but not least Angelos´nice who also entertained us dancing fantastic Zorba!

Dan, Sven, Ulla, Maj, Ingemar and Inger - the 70-thies

And our dear friend Evert is really trying his balance....

And I try to do my best dancing......

But I do not know if I managed......

But the boys did! Look at their legs!

Sven and Angela are thanking Angelos for a fantastic afternoon - and Johan agrees

And this is my way of saying " Thank you Angelos"
Looks like Hans, Bengt and Kjell are satisfied...

And so also Maina and Petra....

The party is over and it is time to say good bye
